Q&A Special With Sprigga Mek

How did your journey with music start?

Music for me started at home. My dad had a band back in the day and my late mom was a gifted songwriter so I was exposed to music at an early age. I started "trying" to sing but I realized that was not meant to be so I found it easier to twist and bend words to make them rhyme.

What was the trigger point that made you decide to get into music?

Isaiah Manoa – A Journey Of Musical Fusion

My passion for music grew deeply about 14 years ago. I joined my first band back in Alotau, and that was the start of my musical journey.

I entered myself into a national singing competition where I managed to make it all the way to the finals and this is where I learnt many things about music and singing.

During this competition, I learnt vocal training and the disciplines required into becoming and being a good musician and this helped the growth in my talent.

The story behind rocker Nimrod Nadile

And PNG’s most followed talent show has made it easier for the rock genre to be comfortably associated with the name Nimrod.

Yes, he is a rocker and one of PNG’s finest, as described by the judging panel of both local and international guest judges.

His love for rock started at an early age when he came across PETRA - a Christian hard rock band, which he says has been his greatest influence.
